Our expertise is built on rigorous research coupled with practical know-how. Abt answers questions about the impacts of housing counseling, self-sufficiency, and asset-building interventions while developing hands-on program strategies.
Our research work includes rigorous evaluations of individual development accounts, pre-purchase and foreclosure mitigation counseling, and other initiatives that build assets, promote financial literacy, and improve access to low-cost financial services for low-income households.
Abt works with local public agencies and nonprofit grantees to develop and implement asset building and supportive service programs. We also work with local public housing agencies to implement effective self-sufficiency programs for their residents.
